Books I have read...

Snagged from Mindy's blog... highlight the ones read (not sure if I read the entire book for some of the ones listed. I read some in high school which was a long time ago!) I also took a course to write for children and read some of the books listed here for that. This is a good list to have because I see quite a few books that are classics that I would like to read someday. This post did a number on my eyes and my brain. I just can't remember everything that I have read in the last 35 years. There were a few books missing like 'A Separate Peace' by John Knowles, and books by Susan Howatch who is a great author. Even James Joyce has had a ton of other books. Why all the Roald Dahl and Jacqueline Wilson books?Well, I have seen a lot of the movies or tv specials of the books-does that count too?
